US MBA Scholarships for International Applicants


Hi all,

I am sourcing options for a US MBA program that I will start in 2016, and I'm very interested in scholarships for international applicants. It's been a bit hard to find this information on the business school websites, but I thought I would share with you what I have found. Right now, my plans are to apply to WUSTL Olin, Vanderbilt, and Virginia. These plans may change though, depending on my GMAT score!

WUSTL Olin has the McDonnell International Scholars Academy program that has scholarships if you've graduated from one of their partner universities. My university is in the list so I plan on applying for this.

Darden has merit scholarships for international students + up to 2 full-tuition scholarships for international applicants. There are also some others but I'm not eligible for them. The full tuition one would be nice though!

For Vanderbilt, there's some diversity scholarships for students from different regions. Also, some others including merit scholarships.

Anyway, this research has given me some relief, knowing that there are scholarships out there. This board has been helpful for me in my MBA quest, so I thought I would share. Hope it helps somebody else!

Also, if you weren't already aware, I know that through this scheme, international students can get loans for studying their MBA in the US:

I know that you can get the loans for Darden and Vanderbilt, but I don't think it's available for Olin.
